Time in the Word
As a Christian, you cannot make it without the Word of God. It is milk, meat and nourishment to the soul. The Bible is what God uses to speak to our hearts and help us grow. Many people come to church regularly, but they don't read the Bible regularly. Listen, if you want to be spiritually strong, start spending time with God each day. Set aside at least ten to fifteen minutes to pray and read God’s Word. God will be faithful to meet you, if you will be faithful to seek Him. What are you supposed to read? I mean the Bible is a big book. Well, how about try this. Read at least one psalm, one proverb, and one chapter of the Gospels each day. I have been doing a variation of this Bible reading program for years, and it has been really helpful in my walk with the Lord. Without a consistent, daily quiet time, you won't be able to grow, or walk in victory, or be the witness you were redeemed to be. But if you spend time with Him, all of that will change, and the rewards will be amazing. Now that’s REAL HOPE.
